STOW, OH – In addition to sponsoring the Bassmaster Elite Series and the growing Team Dick Cepek, Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels will be on site exhibiting at the 47th annual Bassmaster Classic March 23 to 26 on Lake Conroe in Houston, Texas. The company is also sponsoring the popular Live Feed for the tournament, which will air at www.bassmaster.com Friday through Sunday.

“We look forward to the Bassmaster Classic every year,” stated Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Dick Cepek. “I think we are going to witness some very large bass come weigh-in time at Minute Maid Park, and fans across the world will be able to watch all the action with the Bassmaster Live Feed.”

The 2017 Bassmaster Classic will feature 52 of the nation’s premier bass anglers, including Team Dick Cepek members Greg Hackney, Justin Lucas and Clifford Pirch. Competitors will enjoy favorable odds of pulling double-digit-pound bass out of Lake Conroe, a world-class fishery which has benefitted from over 20 years of focused habitat management, including transplanting nursery-grown vegetation, encouraging catch and release of large fish, and the use of bass 13 pounds and heavier for selective breeding. Lake Conroe’s current bass weight record, set in 2009, stands at 15.93 pounds.

Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels is also exhibiting at the Outdoors Expo, housed in the George R. Brown Convention Center. One of the largest events of its kind in the country, the expo features the latest in bass fishing equipment and outdoor gear and is open Friday through Sunday during the Classic.

“I’m expecting that six to ten bass over 8 pounds will be caught each day of the Bassmaster Elite Classic,” predicts Tim Cook, conservation director for the Texas B.A.S.S. Nation.
